Hello, I am trying to update my bios in my ASUS server so I can get my ECC Ram to work. Well hopefully work.. I went to the manual and did everything it said to update the bios but I keep getting the same error. It will say that the floppy drive is found, then that it is reading file "I8043A0.ROM", then it will say the file is not found. I have renamed the bios rom many different times to many different names. I have done this with a cd and through a floppy. I did however notice that when I download the bios update that it is saved as I8043A00.500. I left it as that and I also changed the extension to .ROM. The attached picture is the error that I get. Thank you for the help.

Usually the BIOS file would have .BIN if any extension was used at all. Try typing I8043A0.bin


Most BIOS firmware is a Binary file, hence the .bin extension.


Let me know if this worked or not.
